-About Sempervivum arachnoideum-

Sempervivum arachnoideum, sometimes called hens-and-chicks. It is an evergreen perennial succulent plant, forming a mat of the fleshy rosette. The fleshy leaves are adorned with cobwebby white hair at their tips, often called cobweb houseleek. Small pink flowers will bloom in summer.

-How to care for Sempervivum arachnoideum-

Sun/Temperature: As a hardy succulent variety, Sempervivum arachnoideum grows in the wild. Growing them in the garden or the cracks in the paving will look well in the full sun. Surprising cold hardy, it can grow outdoors in winter. This succulent is highly cold hardy and can tolerate temperatures down to -20°F (-29°C). It can also withstand hot temperatures, but in extremely hot conditions, some afternoon shade may be beneficial. Maintain temperatures between 50°F (10°C) and 80°F (27°C) for optimal growth.

Soil/Pot: The low-maintained succulent plant, quickly grown in well-drained soil, can tolerate a poor environment. Ordinary succulent soil may not be suitable for its growth, the drainage can be improved by adding grit, pumice, and perlite.

Watering: Watering Sempervivum arachoideum requires skill and balance. You must simulate the natural environment of the alpine. This means that you must water your succulents at least once a week. Watering before sunrise or after sunset is best to prevent evaporation. Click here to learn the correct way of watering.

Propagation: Sempervivum arachnoideum produces offsets, also known as "chicks," that can be used for propagation. As the chicks grow and develop roots, they can be carefully separated from the mother succulent plant and replanted in well-draining soil. Ensure that the separated offsets have formed their own root systems before transplanting.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
